THE POLICE ANNOUNCE

SPECIAL GUEST FERGIE TO JOIN

AUSTRALIAN & NEW ZEALAND TOUR!

ADDITIONAL SHOWS CONFIRMED IN PERTH AND ADELAIDE!

The Police today announced that Fergie would join the band on their upcoming visit to New Zealand and Australia. Also, due to overwhelming demand, the band has confirmed additional shows in Perth and Adelaide, as well as a move to an indoor venue for both Adelaide concerts.

Fergie is already well known to audiences in Australia and New Zealand after many trips down under as a member of the Black Eyed Peas. Her dates with The Police will be Fergie’s first solo visit following double platinum sales of her debut album ‘The Dutchess’ in Australia (which has reached platinum status in New Zealand). She has also found impressive chart success this year with such singles as London Bridge and Big Girls Don’t Cry.

Fergie said; “I’ve always been a fan of The Police so I’m really looking forward to this tour. It’s also a great chance to come back to Australia as a solo artist.”

Fergie will join previously announced special guests Fiction Plane, who will open in each city.

The Police also announced a second concert in Perth today, which will be held at Members Equity on Saturday 02 February. Tickets for the new concert will go on sale on Friday 12 October at 9am local time.

Finally, the Adelaide concert scheduled for Monday 28 January at AAMI Stadium will now be held on Monday 28th and Tuesday 29th at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre. This venue change gives Adelaide fans the opportunity to see the only indoor performances by The Police in Australia. Ticket holders for the AAMI performance have the choice of exchanging their current seats for the 29th or being automatically re-allocated for the 28th. Tickets for the previous AAMI performance can be exchanged immediately, and until October 14. For complete details ticket holders can visit www.ticketek.com.au or www.frontiertouring.com.au. Remaining Adelaide tickets will go on sale to the public on October 22 at 9am local time.

The Police Tour opens in Wellington, New Zealand on January 17th and will finish in Perth on February 2nd.. Tickets are still available to all shows in most price categories.

The Police tour is produced by The Next Adventure, A Live Nation Company & RZO Entertainment, Inc. in association with The Frontier Touring Company.

The wait for fans of The Police is officially over. Sting, Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers have confirmed they will be spending the summer downunder with stadium concerts scheduled in Wellington, Auckland, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth this January and February 2008.

With over 1,770,000 tickets sold to date and more concerts to be announced, The Police tour is definitely the hottest ticket of the year.

In 1977, The Police stormed the music scene by blending reggae, punk, jazz and rock. Sting, Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers created an unmistakably nuanced sound filled with evocative melodies, infectious lyrics and rock & roll swagger. The Police dominated the top of the charts and radio airwaves worldwide with five #1 albums and a succession of top 10 hit singles. In the six years they were together, The Police became one of the world's most famous bands, earning six Grammy Awards and countless fans around the globe.

The band have just released a greatest hits collection, “The Police” (A&M) to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their first single “Fall Out”. This consummate collection brings together the biggest hits from the band’s five original studio albums and includes their very first single, 1977’s “Fall Out.”

A portion of the proceeds from this tour will be donated to WaterAid, an international NGO, founded in 1981 and dedicated to reducing poverty by improving access to safe water, sanitation, and hygiene education. For information, visit: www.wateraid.org.
